Meet Our Partners
La Asociacion Educativa Y Cultural De La IEP is a local Peruvian Nonprofit in Pucusana. Owned and operated by Elena Prado Effio, this nonprofit contributes to the devastating needs of Pucusana through education and community outreach. The Pucusana Project works directly with this nonprofit to accomplish our goals in Pucusana.
For the past 18 years, The Asociacion Educativa Y Cultural De La IEP has run Pierre Laplace High School. This school has a 100% graduation rate and averages a 90% college acceptance rate with most of their students attending University on Scholarship. This school is known for its excellence in math and has won National chess competitions. The school hires Professors from Lima City, which enables it to offer a much higher level of education than the surrounding public and private schools. Many of these students have gone on to University to study careers and some have become doctors, lawyers, and translators.
This nonprofit also contributes tremendously to the community by providing classes to the uneducated adults. In past years they have offered cooking classes and craft lessons to help the women in the community gain more income.
With the purchase of a large property and the building of a new facility, The Pucusana Project and The Asociacion Educativa Y Cultural De La IEP hope to expand their educational ministry to all of Pucusana.
